Representations of Buildings

Striking images of buildings and urban landscapes, both real and imaginary, are to be found in all visual media, from stamps to early religious art, from science fiction films to book illustrations. Buildings may be the subject of the work or merely atmospheric detail but in many cases the architecture serves as a symbol or underscores a message in the image. Of course, paintings of buildings can just be beautiful in themselves.

It is the aim here to show some of the images that abound, point to others and to encourage you to seek them out and enjoy them for yourself.
